Royal theme for bingo fundraising tea party

MECCA Bingo in Wallsend is holding a tea party next week to raise money for charity.

The Blooming Great Tea Party will take place on Wednesday, June 15, in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care, as part of the company’s 2011 charity partnership.

Customers are also being encouraged to adopt a Royal theme by wearing glamourous hats or even dressing up as a member of the Royal Family on the day.

Andy Hubbard, manager at Mecca Bingo, said: “The money raised will allow more Marie Curie nurses to provide free care to terminally ill people in their own homes.”
